Event Details

‘A mother should protect her child…’


Queer Horror Nights is thrilled to present LYLE (2014) by Stewart Thorndike. Sometimes reffered to as a lesbian Rosmary’s Baby, Thorndike’s LYLE is a tale of pregnancy, motherhood, grief and isolation. With an incredibly powerful performance from Gaby Hoffman, LYLE tells the story of a New York couple who tragically lose their young child in a devastating accident whilst expecting their second baby. Grief and despair quickly turn into paranoia as Leah (Hoffman) suspects the neighbours are up to something sinister.

A short horror film will screen before LYLE.

Stewart Thorndike distills the primal fears of pregnancy, motherhood, betrayal, and New York real estate(!!) into a potent film that somehow manages to be both very funny and a furious catharsis – Susanna Locascio at Hammer to Nail
